If you are on Instagram, you know about the variety of daily hashtags you can join.
This morning, the tags #makesmesmilethursday and #myowndrumdecor , got me thinking about how I decorate and what about my decor makes me smile.
You might wonder what it is about this shot of my bathroom door that
makes me smile - our painter is finished, our walls are a pristine white and I love the original 1920's glass knobs on our doors.
The mantel makes me smile, not just because Steve hung a recent painting,
but because Cindy of Consider It All Joy came to visit in August and she brought me the cute ceramic pumpkins that are finally on display.
The windows in this photo are what make me smile - they were custom made to exactly match the 1928 windows (that are now a headboard) and we love them.
The vignette doesn't just make me smile, it makes me laugh, because who has this many 2's? - definitely decorating to "my own drum".
In August I posted this picture on Instagram and it didn't just make me smile,
Steve loved the photograph and just finished his rendition of my photo.
Last week I bought a bouquet of orange flowers at the grocery store and I'm still smiling because 1 little $5 bouquet filled not one,
but four containers of flowers.
While setting our bedroom back to rights after painting, I came up with a silly night stand for my side of the bed - a striped wooden box turned upside down holds a bunch of my favorite books and it definitely falls into the "my own drum" and "makes me smile" category.
What is making you smile these days?
